1:19pm
just the incredible music, that about 70,000 of our closest friends are listening to right now, but for the respect that everybody has for this park and the work that we do with the outside land music promoters to make sure that in a few short weeks, what you see out here will again be a beautiful, green, field filled with children playing soccer. >> everything pops back up, we are getting better and better as the years go by. bringing it back real quick, that is what we do. we bring the grass back and make sure that the plants are not destroyed. >> we work year round to plan for this event to make sure that all of the waste is picked up. 77 percent of all of the waste is diverted or recycling or composted. >> the gardeners work with another product operation staff to make sure that first and foremost we are protecting the incredible trees, meadows and
1:20pm

1:23pm
>> let's look at fixtures and faucets and accessories. it is going to be very exciting here. please join us for "bluilding sf." joining janessa and i today is andre. thanks for coming. we have had some great times in the past with some of these shows. you have been kitchen and bath in the past. >> i'm an architect. i do a lot of construction work. or >> do people look for when they do a bathroom remodels? >> that is a good question. kitchens are the ultimate and social room, while bathrooms are kind of the opposite. bathrooms, like kitchens, are part of homes and houses, so they are part of architecture, and they are opportunities for people to express themselves, to express their style.
1:24pm
they are just an important element in the house is in san francisco. >> i think we can talk about how bathrooms had changed in san francisco. the old-style we're used to have a separate compartment for the bathtub, and now, we have a whole different concept. >> traditionally in san francisco with victorian and edwardian, we had split bathrooms. a separate room for a toilet, and a second room for a tub. i have done literally dozens of projects where we try to combine them. the difference in today's baffin's is there is a lot more stuff. double vanities, soaking tub, showers, toilets, bedets, a lot more things going on. >> has this economic decline at the moment -- has that affected people's desire for complexity in stuff? have you seen a short-term move toward simplicity?
1:25pm
>> yes and no. people still love their bathrooms. people think of them as an important room, as an investment for their home. yes, there is the gamut. some people are really just for function and utilitarian. some of them are large and lavish and everything in between. >> we are going to start looking at a couple of little vignettes of bathrooms. we can talk about fixtures and use that as a springboard for questions for our audience and discussions from some of the manufacturers we have here. let's start by looking at one right back here. this is a really interesting one because this has some of the characteristics of a traditional san francisco building. it has this starting with the board, i think it is called, and it has both old-fashioned kind of pictures and real modern stuff. what do you see here? >> looking around, it has gone a
1:26pm
soaking tub. >> it has little jets in a, so like a spot/hydrotherapy kind of thing? >> exactly. what people need to be mindful on for these types of tubs are two things -- number one, they have a motor, and you have to have an access panel on it. you have to be mindful of that. you cannot just stick it in there and hide the motor forever. it has waterjets here. really popular in these tubs is soaps and oils, and the water recycles them. sometimes the shampoos and oils clogged the system. an alternative to that is air jets. air jets do not do that. it has a pedestal sink and a matching toilet. it has a wonderful medicine cabinet here with a great feature now, so there is actually a locking compartment
1:27pm
so you can put your medicines in there. >> there you go. excellent. and it has got its little shaving mirror or whatever. makeup mirror. normally, this would be recessed, right? >> yes, it would be pushed on the wall, so you have to be again mindful about that. when you are doing the construction, you have to leave a little opening for a period >> one of the big issues we always have is coordination and construction between the fixture's and the trade. the plumber might come along and put a vent pipe or some of the plumbing lines in the wall light real -- right where you want to resist the medicine cabinet, so we need to have the architect or someone coordinate between the contractor and the various subcontractors just to make sure that the homeowner gets what they had in mind when they designed it. >> absolutely. even in a bathroom, there is a lot going on. there is medicine cabinets. there is light sconces. you are going to have a light switch here, and our live here,
1:28pm
so you want to be very thoughtful about where they placed them, and either a design professional or a good contractor will help you coordinate them. also, this is -- also, an alternative to a pedestal sink, this is very popular now, these are vessel sinks. this would be a basin, which is in a bowl shape that would sit on the counter. these are very popular. this is obviously very contemporary design for a very traditional design. i always tell the clients about worrying about cleaning and things like that. this bathtub also has a hand- held shower element, which is good forehand baiting and just for cleaning as well. >> i have some questions about these fixtures and fittings. they seem to oppose all kinds of plumbing issues. fortunately, we are here today with san francisco's chief plumbing inspector. i have a question for you. i'm concerned about the hand-
1:29pm
held shower. i always hear about that flow prevention. if you were to drop the shower into the tub, you might contaminate the water supply. >> that is correct. that kind of installation on the bottom of that picture, you would actually have a vacuum they would install on the bottom where the host does connect to the faucet itself which would prevent any kind of back flow into the plumbing system. >> so it is isolating this from the water supply? >> is. the house itself, that line, it would contaminate it if you had it inside of the bathtub, but with the vacuum breaker, it would prevent any kind of water to get into the plumbing. >> so it you dropped it into dirty water, you not want that dirty water to enter and that flow and contaminated. >> that is 100% correct. >> what are the special requirements when you have a tub that has all kinds of special features and fittings like that?
